OJ Simpson suffered a frighting collapse after experiencing stroke like symptoms in the Nevada prison where he is being held on armed robbery charges…
O.J., who turns 65 in July, was talking with some of his fellow inmates in the prison’s recreation area when his speech became slurred, an insider revealed. He then slumped over and fell off his chair, complaining of double vision and weakness in his arms.
“His buddies were sure he suffered a stroke,” continued the insider. “The guards were so concerned they sounded the alarm and carried O.J. to his bunk while a doctor rushed from the prison hospital to help him.O.J. has gained a considerable amount of weight since he began serving a sentence of up to 33 years for armed robbery and other convictions in 2008. At the time of his incarceration, the 6-foot-2 former gridiron great weighed 235 pounds. Sources say he’s now tipping the scales at a whopping 283!
After monitoring him for several days, prison doctors determined O.J. did not suffer a stroke, but rather a serious pre-stroke condition called a Transient Ischemic Attack, which mimics an actual stroke. They warned him he needed to change his eating and exercise habits immediately, said the insider.
“O.J. told a close friend, ‘I plan on living long enough to walk out of this prison one day. I’m taking this for real – I’m going to get in shape,’” said the insider.
